‘It is not the consciousness of men that determines their being, but, on the contrary, their social being that determines their consciousness’ Karl Marx (1818-1883)

Work in the public spaces and socially  conscious art has been a consistent area of work that has previously included banner making, flash gallery visits and women’s lock-in arts workshops.

 Recently  this work has involved a commission made with Michelle Rheeston, for the ‘Play me I’m yours” international publicly sited piano project; ‘Thank you’ stickers as part of the ‘Under the Pavement’ research project and Bird Relief and the Art Manifesto miniature terrariums, both work for Airspace  Yarden opening party, a twitter campaign based on the UK Biodiversity action plan and the creation of two democratically run online community spaces.
